Under £10 projects - June - #2

Welcome back for the second part of the June's Under £10 project!
I have to admit that it has been difficult for me to come up with different project this month simply because although I love papers I don't tend to use a lot of them on my layout. So for this month's under £10 where patterned papers had the spot light my Mr Mojo got stuck! We all go through phases of lack of inspiration and when this happens to me I have one solution: I hit Pinterest hard! And it really helped me to get the juice flowing! I ended-up designing this very simple layout that I love:



I used the sheet of grey Cardstock and decided to let the papers and the photo be the centre of attention. I really do love this page! Once again I used the alpha paper from the paper pad for the journalling and some alpha stamps for my title. If you don't have any alpha stamps, a great technique to use for this layout is to write your title with a felt tip pen to then emboss it with some white or black embossing powder.


I cut all the squares of paper at the same size and then distressed the edges with my scissors. To add volume I simply decided to stick the middle of each squares with tape but to then add some foam pads at the corners to give them a very striking risen effect.


Some white splashes of paint add some interest to the plain background and help integrate the patterned papers to the grey card stock.
If you feel curious of what inspires me you can view my Pinterest board here.
I hope this inspired you and that I will see you around to our third and last part of this Junes under £10 project!

This is so effective and a truly wonderful layout. I love the simplicity of it, which allows the photo to be centre stage. Becky x
